Bike Commute 64: Summer Rain at the Wilkes Street Tunnel, a photo by Rootchopper on Flickr.
When it’s hot and muggy out, riding in the rain is a relief. Tonight’s ride included a 100 foot slog through 4 inches of water on Union Street in Old Town Alexandria. I passed a runner who had drifter to the left in front of me. She apologized for getting in my way. Laughing, she said she was trying to avoid a huge puddle on the trail, “but I don’t know why”. She was right; we were both already soaked to the bone.
